Who are you ?
I’m a service engineer for electromicroscopy at Nanovision, in Brugherio, Italy. Actually, I’m 54, and I started this job 33 years ago.
Can you describe us your job ?
My job consists in selling microscopes, demonstrating them and making service to all Hitachi microscopes in Italy, from the smaller to the bigger ones.
Why did you choose this job ?
It’s a question of opportunity. I was studying electronics, and my father worked in a company who did sellings and servicing in the field of electronic. This company has also a microscopy unit, and the person in charge of this microscopy unit left. So I applied and got his job, because; I was the only one in the company knowing electronics.
What will be yours tasks during the cruise ?
I brought the portable SEM with me for this cruise. I will help the scientists who gave me this opportunity to accompany them as much as possible. I will produce the most beautiful pictures possible, and support them in discovering the instrument, so they get used to it.
What do you like (most) in your work ?
It’s a great job because I’m in contact with many customers who have many different applications, from private companies to universities. I’m very curious, and I see many new things. From the service point of view, any problem is a new problem. Each time I’m learning something new, there is no routine. Look at this cruise; it’s quite exceptional for me to be on board !
